parts. located on the northern tip of the san fransisco peninsula is one of those parks-the presidio. this three square mile green space was originally established as a fort by spain in 1776; where large gun batteries were built to protect the bay from a naval invasion. presidio was ceased by the us military in 1846 at the onset of the mexican american war and later served as an important us base to the vietnam war. congress ended the military use of the presidio in 1994 and made it part of the golden gate national recreation area. we met up with our guest hiker julie from indianapolis for her first visit to the city by the bay and her first look at this amazing park just minutes from downtown san fransisco. the presidio is also home to this hallowed ground; the first us national cemetary on the west coast. many soilders and sailors who gave their lives overseas in pacific battles rest here, overlooking san fransisco bay. after a solomn stroll we decided to head west along the bay area ridged trail and walked toward the sea cliffs of the presidio. what we're finding is kind of differ
